8th October 2009

Birds even harder to find today in a north westerly breeze, overhead were 2 Grey and 3 Pied Wagtails, 50 Linnets and a Skylark.
A cloud of 3,000 Knot were seen moving across the east hoyle and both Kestrel and Peregrine made an appearance by the island.

Very little indeed on the ground and ringers had to be content to see a Meadow Pipit still in post-juvenile moult (left) at this late stage of the season and another that had completed as expected at this time (right).
